“We find that there are four general types of people: purists, fruit and nut lovers, chocolate fans and those with a very sweet tooth. With our six signature flavors, there’s something for everyone,” says Marissa Gurdian, founder of Biscoche macaroons, a web-based company that creates treats in a Kosher Westchester bakery.
“The inspiration was a beloved family recipe for chocolate chip macaroons,” she says. “We wanted to develop other flavors and make them available as a gift item to delight coconut lovers worldwide.” Along with cocoa (chocolate chip)—the most popular, says Gurdian—there are five other Kosher, egg- and gluten-free flavors: classic (coconut), dulce (caramel), tropico (mango), garmone (pistachio) and rosso (tart cherry).
But they’re not just aiming to satisfy that sweet tooth: The company is committed to giving back, so through a partnership with the Food Bank for New York City, a meal is donated for every box they sell. “Giving back was key to our mission because New York is such a place of both scarcity and abundance,” says Gurdian. The treats are sold exclusively online—and ship free in just two days—but if you’re in NYC or Scarsdale, NY, they also offer a courier delivery service.
